Morning everyone. I have to start this blog post by sending out my thoughts & prayers to the city of Boston and all of those affected in yesterdays events. These news stories are becoming far too common & need to end NOW. I pray for peace to those families & throughout this world.
And even though it seems silly at the moment, here is my Monday recap:
9:00am: Coffee with creamer
10:30am: Breakfast- Almond Joy Oatmeal
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 banana
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 2 teaspoons mini chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon slivered almonds
1:00pm: Lunch- "Spinach Pizza"
Speaking of spinach, I must admit I tried my 'spinach nachos' with spinach rather than arugula last Thursday, and I have to say I didn't enjoy them as much. The spinach got flimsy, meanwhile the arugula was more sturdy & stood up better to the microwaving. Just an FYI. Spinach, however, is great here where it needs to be sauteed.
3:30pm: Snack- Fiber 1 Coconut Almond Protein bar
5:30pm: Dinner- Spring Salad with Walnut crusted goat cheese
One of my VERY favorite salads. This one just FELT GOOD to eat.
- Salad mix
- Halved green grapes
- Goat cheese slices coated in toasted walnuts
Accented by this VERY FRESH dressing...
- 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 5-6 diced basil leaves
- 2 diced scallions
Sooooooooooo good! Light, healthy & fresh with a tangy crunch from the walnut goat cheese & the FRESH dressing with that beautiful basil. I can't say it enough: SOOOOOOOOOO VERY GOOD!
6:30-7:50pm: Beginners Power Yoga
Tonight's class was a little tougher than usual...and I'm not sure if it was because we did a few more power moves than usual on Monday OR that by noon yesterday, I thought I was getting the flu as my whole body began to ACHE from head to toe. Only to remember my return to boxing class the day before. Even now, my shoulders still feel super tense. I guess SOMETHIN workedJ
Have a good Tuesday.
